Stopped here to eat lunch and ended up hiking around for an hour before I had to go. I will return to camp and hike when I have more time. It looked like this place had it all, great picnic areas, photo ops, camp sites, good trails for moderate hikers. Bathroom and drink machine at the top.

Nice hiking paths. Bathrooms were spotless in a.m., but by afternoon visitors had made a mess. Looked like good camping spots although we did not use those. Plan to in future.

this is a great place to take the family. it gets a little crowded sometimes, being that its right off the highway. The hike around the knob is easy and can be done with small kids. There's lots of nooks and crannies for the kids to explore along the trail. Don't forget about the rest of the park. The south end of the park is on the river and its beautiful and deserted. It takes a bit to get around to it, but the river view is spectacular.I would highly recommend this place for cheap family fun.

I've often seen Pilot Mountain from a distance, but this was our first visit to the summit (parking lot area) and it was a beautiful site. It's great to be able to drive so close to the pinnacle and there are plenty of hiking trails to complete the experience. It appears they have camping opportunities as well, but we were there just for a day trip.

Nice hike, but almost straight up! View was lovely from the top and worth the hike. We took the road back down which wasn't as scenic but shorter.
